Summary: Overall it's a very good mic considering I only paid 28 dollars for it. The long wire is annoying but I can understand that other users might need the long wire.
Pros: Bought them for a cheap price (27.99). Have soft padding on top and is very comfortable. Fits my big head. Mic quality is average. Sound is average.
Cons: Very long wire. This might be good for other people but it just gets in the way for me. I trip over it and roll over it all the time with my chair. Exterior mad of plastic, but so far has been pretty sturdy. As said in the pros, the mic and sound is average, but that is good enough for the price ...
Summary: I've owned many cheap headphones for computer use and thought they were fine. Then I put these on for the first time and was blown away by the deep, full sound. I started hearing things in games, movies and music I had never heard before.
Pros: - Great sound for the price. Deep, full bass and clear, rich mids and highs. - mic sounds very clear, is adjustable and DETACHABLE - Velvet ear cups are like a soft head hug. - nice cord length - lightweight and very comfortable for long periods of use - They don't squish your head in a vice like...
Cons: - The light weight can make them feel fragile (though I've abused these for 5 years and only now breaking down) - detachable mic can be easily lost if you're not careful - velvet ear coverings are more difficult to clean than vinyl or leather - inner covering over the speakers can rub against out...
Summary: Microphone piece is separate but not replaceable?
Pros: Works GREAT on my Fatal1ty MoBo and had no problems installing or using
Cons: This Microphone is too quiet. At the max volume for the headset and the max in my Control Panel sound settings, decibel level, and volume mixer is like someone talking to me from across my house. still worth the money, but take the volume into consideration
Pros: This is the best headset I have own to date. Very happy with High quality sounds coming out of this headset. Headset looks beautiful. I use it for gaming. The company warehouse delivery service is amazing. It arrived in 2-3 days.
Cons: Headset looks and feels very delicate. I am afraid of the wire longevity, it looks fragile too. Sound is kind of low. Other than this very happy with purchase.
Pros: *Pretty comfortable *Look nice *Fairly durable *Sound is good *People can hear me
Cons: Its hard to complain about a headset at this price point when it has lasted me 2 years. The one thing I wish it did was noise canceling from the sounds of my life around me! I can hear everything going around my house while I'm gaming. Otherwise its a nice headset.
Summary: I mentioned earlier that my old pair finally died; I should count my lucky stars that the headset lasted as long as it did (most headsets won't make it past 1 year), but the reason my first pair died annoyed me a bit.
Pros: I just got a new pair of these in the mail a few hours ago. My old one died. That sounds like a con, but it took them somewhere around 4-5 years to kick the bucket. These things have a huge life span if you treat them right. Sound quality is really good for the price, and unlike many other headph...
Cons: None really. You can't complain when a pair lasts for almost 5 years, but I will say something in the Other Thoughts regarding this.
